      Hare Krishna Friends,
      Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized


                                                     TEXT 12


                                      na tv evaham jatu nasam
                                      na tvam neme janadhipah
                                     na caiva na bhavisyamah
                                      sarve vayam atah param


      na--never; tu--but; eva--certainly; aham--I; jatu--become; na--never; asam--existed; na--it is not so; tvam--yourself; na--not; ime--all
      these; jana-adhipah--kings; na--never; ca--also; eva--certainly; na--not like that; bhavisyamah--shall exist; sarve--all of us; vayam--we;
      atah param--hereafter.


      Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.


      In the Vedas, in the Katha Upanisad as well as in the Svetasvatara Upanisad, it is said that the Supreme Personality of Godhead is the maintainer of innumerable living entities, in terms of their different situations according to individual work and reaction of work. That Supreme Personality of Godhead is also, by His plenary portions, alive
      in the heart of every living entity. Only saintly persons who can see, within and without, the same Supreme Lord, can actually attain to perfect and eternal peace.

                                 nityo nityanam cetanas cetananam
                                  eko bahunam yo vidadhati kaman
                             tam atma-stham ye 'nupasyanti dhiras
                                    tesam santih sasvati netaresam

      The same Vedic truth given to Arjuna is given to all persons in the world who pose themselves as very learned but factually have but a poor
      fund of knowledge. The Lord says clearly that He Himself, Arjuna, and all the kings who are assembled on the battlefield, are eternally
      individual beings and that the Lord is eternally the maintainer of the individual living entities both in their conditioned as well as in their liberated situations.
